I plan on spending a few days in Makati with my girlfriend before travelling to another region. I chose Makati because of its proximity to entertainment (restaurants/bars/clubs)and of the availability of hotels with spa treatments (to please the girlfriend). I've read some hotel reviews and have selected the Shangri-La, Peninsula, and Mandarin. We're in our late 20's and would like to get a not-too-touristy vibe of Manila (apart from the spa, shopping, and museums, of course).
Here are my questions:
1) Which hotel gives a great spa experience?
2) Which hotel is within walking distance to the shopping areas (less than 1 km)?
3) Which hotel is within a safe walking distance to the restaurant and bar/club areas?
4) Are there any cultural events, performances, or museum exhibitions that we should see?
Thanks in advance.
